Bose has updated its Acoustic Wave system with the release of system II which it claims brings music even closer the sound of a live performance. The original won awards for being a breakthrough in audio reproduction, and this new model improves on the sound and functionality that Bose says makes it unique to the industry.
The Acoustic Wave system II is based on Dr Amar G Bose’s waveguide speaker technology, but the 2.3 meter long waveguide folded inside is now combined with the latest Bose advancements in signal processing.
The system boasts clearer and more accurate reproduction of musical instruments and more natural human voice, even at higher volumes or outside.
The CD player plays back both audio and MP3 CDs, displaying track information when available. There’s also an FM/AM radio tuner, and an audio input jack for connecting other equipment. The backlit remote control has powerful IR emitters so doesn’t have to be pointed directly at the system. An optional 5-CD changer module can be added to the system. It runs from AC power or via optional power case and battery pack.
It comes in platinum white or graphite grey and will cost £885 for the system, £299 for the CD changer, and £35 for the remote (shame it’s not bundled at this price). Available from their Regent Street store or direct from their website.
